You can use Find My to find out the remaining battery life of your iPhone and iPad that is not with you. Here’s how you can use this feature.

Want to Remotely Find Out Your iPhone or iPad’s Battery Life? Find My is Here to the Rescue!

Finding out the remaining battery life on an iPhone and iPad is an easy task. All it takes is one glance at the status bar and you know exactly how much juice is remaining and whether or not you will be able to get through the day.

However, what if the device whose battery life you want to find out is not with you. Let’s say, that device is at home and you are not. In that case, you can still find out how much battery life is remaining, thanks to Find My. Interestingly, if you want to know if you forgot to take the device off a charger, you can use Find My for that as well.


Note: For this to work, your device must be signed into your Apple ID and Find My must be enabled and connected to the internet either using cellular or Wi-Fi.

In order to make sure Find My is up and running, simply go to Settings> Apple ID> Find My iPhone. Make sure the feature is turned on and running. By default, it’s turned on so you don’t have to worry about anything, unless you turned it off manually for some reason.

Make sure all toggle switches are turned on, just in case.

Step 1. Launch the Find My app on your iPhone or iPad. If you’re asked to sign in, then please do so using your Apple ID.

Step 2. Tap on the Devices tab.

Step 3. Select the iPhone or iPad whose battery life you wish to find out. The battery life is right under the device’s name.

As I mentioned before, if the device is plugged it and on charge, Find My will also give you that information by showing you a lightning bolt on the battery icon.

We wish Find My would go a little further by showing the exact percentage of battery remaining, but this is more than enough for a lot of people.

You can use this information in a wide variety of ways and it is especially handy if you are away from home and use your iPad as a Home Hub for your HomeKit setup. It’s extremely vital that you don’t let the battery go down otherwise you will lose access to every smart accessory remotely. But, if you have an Apple TV, then you have nothing to worry about.
